  1. Got to say that I'm very pleased so far, fit is excellent. Continues like this and I'll be declaring a gem!
  2. Progress First the cockpit tub, hopefully correct colour. Then fuselage assembled around it, and wings ready. And fitted, a basic airframe.
  3. Slow start for me, but some preparation of the interior so far.
  4. Pledging support - I've got one Republic in my stash - this Academy Thunderjet.
  5. Repainted as US Army, evaluated as a CAS aircraft - and I shortened the pylons.
  6. Whilst waiting for the off, here are my other Swedish builds - in approximate order of date in service. Heller SAAB J-21 Heller SAAB Lancen. Airfix Boeing Vertol. And rescuing the crew of that Lancen, following a crash. Airfix Drakens. Matchbox Viggen. Heller Viggen.
  7. Introducing my Italeri JAS-39A Gripen, to be built straight from the box. The only eligable kit in my stash. Bought 2000, from Andy Pack Models, and costing £6.50. Here are the parts. I've got a 2001 SAMI review of the Revell version of this kit. Scalemates says they're the same, but for stores options. And the options available to me, undecided as yet. Edited with new photo - showing all 3 options.
  8. Both are still there - so continue to count on my support.
  9. Nothing has changed as of Jan 2020, so continue to count on my support.
  10. Nothing has changed at this point in 2020 - so continue to count upon my support.
  11. I did the reverse here without any major cutting. The difference is 10cm or 1.3mm in 1/72, so judge for yourself.

    Airfix 1/144 kit, this one the original BA scheme. This kit has a fixed nose. Revell 1/144 kit, in the next BA scheme. Another Revell build, this one shows you the droopable nose. Another Revell, built in flight - these are aftermarket BOAC markings, but similar to the forthcoming Airfix kit. Building a first model for someone unfamilar with models, I'd make it as simle and robust as possible. In-flight, undercarriage retracted, nose raised, and on a stand. I'd say Airfix is the most robust of the two kits I've shown.
  13. Confirming my continued support, same kit - and possibly a Beaufort, hopefully 2021.
  14. So how did I do against my 2013 measures of: At least 12 finishes during the year - so average > one per month, well 27 all in. At least one non-aircraft, - Jagdpanzer, Tiger, FAMO and 88mm to chose from. At least one 48 scale, not this year At least one other non-72 scale, Jagdpanzer, Tiger, FAMO and 88mm to chose from, At least one FAA, Sea Vixen.
  15. Here's my Italeri Sea Flanker. Part of a Flanker GB from 2017. Berated within minutes of me buying it - in 1999. An opinion that I tended to confirm during the build.
  16. Airfix Wildcat for original 1976 Midway film, this model is actually Marian E Carl's Guadalcanal aircraft,
  17. Does anyone know the purpose of those underside windows? Surely not for navigation or weapon aiming.
  18. Raises the bar, just added in a Wildcat, Dauntless and Mustang.
  19. Tim's Airfix P-51D Mustang as Passion Wagon.
